I have been trying to hit all the metro parks this fall and Three Creeks has been my favorite! I love that "off the trail" type of path that leads you to the three creeks! So beautiful in the fall! I may try to hike it if we get a light snow, I imagine it will be extra beautiful!
Hi Sara! This is a great metro park! I agree! I am also hoping to hit Three Creeks Metro Park after a snow fall! I bet it will be beautiful!
